Authorities say dogs that attacked and killed two Livingston County residents have been euthanized.
The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus and The Ann Arbor News report that 10 purebred or mixed American bulldogs have been destroyed. Officials say four were believed to be involved in last Thursday's attacks. The others were considered unadoptable.
The animals were seized from a farm across the street from where the bodies of 91-year-old Edward Gierlach and 56-year-old Cheryl Harper were found. Gierlach was in the driveway of his home in Iosco Township. Harper was taking a walk nearby.

    this is the only thing that could of happened.they got the taste of killing.I'm not saying certain dogs are bad dogs.to many people get them for the wrong reasons, train them the wrong ways.the ones who raises the dogs to sell,don't check people out.they want a sale.It is a good possiblity people need to cut back on raiseing certain breeds till people can take good proper care of these dogs and keep them out of peoples hands that use them wrong.train them wrong ect. this is for the breeds protection.the owner of dogs need to be held responsible.the dogs should of been fenced in,tied up,and if the owner did not know the laws,didn't need dogs in the first place.and yes there are a few dogs that just go mental,reguardless.inbreed,over breed ect causes these problems.which goes back to humans one way or the other.animals are great,do right by them,they will you.
